Best program for a fast encode
on Dec 10, 2010 at 5:14:49 am

Hi Guys,

I'm rather uneducated on DVD Authoring, surprisingly enough. When spitting out a 44 minute clip from AVID to Quicktime, I'm finding that AvidDVD can take up to an hour and a half to encode it into an ISO file. Can anyone recommend a program that can spit out an ISO a bit faster than this? I apologize if this is a "newbie" kind of question, but I'm not too well-versed on this.

Thanks
Sean

Hi Daniel,

I'm running on -

Windows XP
Intel Xenon, 3.40 GHZ
3GB RAM

The media is SD, 3:1. Typically 8 tracks of video, 16 audio. I realize that under the circumstances, Avid DVD is actually doing a good job. But, you know how it is. Producer wants me to see if anything can "do better".

If you don't mind I would like to piggy back your thread....

I need to burn basic DVDs fast. They will only be 4 clips in SD. An intro clip (always same), and then 3 other clip for maybe a total of 20~ minutes of footage.

Is there a noticeable encoding speed difference between between iDVD vs. Toast for example? Or is DVD Studio Pro or AvidDVD faster then the rest?

I will be using a Mac Pro 8core.

Or am I splitting hairs worrying about this?
